UYE's in 2016

My Mr Magoo look
Do you like my UYE's? These Unofficial Yelp Events are uniquely designed. I welcome your feedback.

As usual, I incorporate cultural events and local businesses to interact with the guests. There is always trinkets offering at my UYE.

2016 is going to be a busy year for me. I'd like to plan my UYE far in advance. It is very time consuming to send invitations on Yelp. So, please pay attention to your friends' feeds on mobile app, Talk posts or Events page for the latest announcement.

Remember, it takes 2 to have an UYE. If no one replied "I'm in", the event is likely to be cancelled. I need your support to promote my events by your "Sounds Cool" votes.

Date

Desktop Updates

I noticed a new features today November 3rd. It's kind of funky.
Event page on Google Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80 m
Compared with the old version. 


I noticed these new features in October.
They removed "To Review" and "To Try". It's Nothing now.

Photo taking tips are kind of cool. But people can't see this on the phone.

I can't disable auto befriending from Facebook. I kept seeing people I don't want on my friend list.
Auto Friending is kind of embarrasing
